    Park Tools

    Considering getting the PK-57 and the AK-32 tool kits from Park now that I have got a Wrench Force stand, the Zinn and the Art of Mountain Bike Maintenance and the will to do the things myself just for the fun of it and to get things working perfectly. From what I've read, they seem to be very good tools. Anybody got better or different ideas, such as better tools, less expensive tools? Thanks.

    Yeah new tools!

    Dosen't buying new tools rule?!?!

    I've been using Park tools and stands for 14 years and have nothing but love for them. I do have a set of shimano cable cutters that I like better than the Parks but other than that I have nothing bad to say about Park.

    I got most of my tools before the Pedros and Wrench Force stuff started popping up so I've never had experience with them. In my opinion you can't go wrong with Park.

    Happy wrenching!

    Bike tools

    Park tools are very good tools and well designed. There are other brands that offer alternatives, but only a few tools are different enough to seek them out. For instance, until recently the best shop chain tool on the market was the expensive Shimano one with the rosewood handles. The reason being that there are extensions to the shelf to hold the chain more steady. Now Pedros has one (about half the price) that is about the same design, and Pedros tools are also very good. Other quality bike tool makers are VAR, Wheels Manufacturing, Stein, Hozan, and of course Campagnolo (if you can afford their stuff). Speaking of Hozan, their crown race extractor and setter are the best out there, without question. These are the newer ones, by the way, not the old "horseshoe" and slide hammer designs.
